Walking in a Winter Wonderland...
Sew a wintry lap quilt in gorgeous blue and silver holiday prints!
We'll be spending the next two weeks sharing the Blue Holidays Quilt-Along with you! This cozy lap quilt features our wintry Blue Holidays collection--perfect to use all winter long!
Follow along as we reveal the quilt row by row and make it yourself to snuggle under all winter long. The finished quilt measures 60" x 68" and features five different pieced blocks.
Today we're sharing the tutorial for Star Block #2. You'll need four to make a complete row. We used a directional print in the block, so orient your pieces carefully!
(to make 4 blocks)
¼ yard White Filigree print
3/8 yard Gray Ornament print
5/8 yard Blue Stripe print
From the White Filigree:
(1) 5-1/4” x WOF strip; subcut into (4) 5-1/4” squares and (4) 4-1/2” squares
From the Gray Ornament:
(1) 5” x WOF strip; subcut into (8) 5” squares
From the Blue Stripe:
(1) 5-1/4” x WOF strip; subcut into (4) 5-1/4” squares
(2) 4-1/2” x WOF strips; subcut into (8) 4-1/2” squares
Make the Blocks:
Step 1 Cut (1) 5-1/4” White Filigree square and (1) 5-1/4” Blue Stripe square diagonally in half twice to make quarter-square triangles (QST).
Step 2 Referring to the photo for placement, sew the short edge of (1) White Filigree QST to the short edge of (1) Blue Stripe QST. Make (4). Note that the Blue Stripe is directional, so you’ll have two sets of pieced triangles—one set with the stripes running horizontally, and one set with stripes running vertically.
Step 3 Cut (2) 5” Gray Ornament square diagonally in half once to make half-square triangles (HST). Sew each blue/white pieced triangle to a Gray Ornament HST along the long edge. Trim to measure 4-1/2” square.
Step 4 Lay out (4) pieced units from Step 3, (4) 4-1/2” Blue Stripe squares, and (1) 4-1/2” White Filigree square into (3) rows of (3) squares each. Note orientation of squares and pieced units so that the stripes all run in the same direction within the block.
Step 5 Sew squares/units into rows.
Step 6 Sew the rows together to complete the 12-1/2” square Star Block #2.
Step 7 Repeat Steps 1-6 to make a total of (4) blocks.
